Feel free to ask if you have any other questions. Great instructions and visuals for the airport installation. I ask, because you had your bluetooth wire under your airport module. And would the installation of a bluetooth be somewhat straight forward as the airport seem to be?
On that note: I have never used Bluetooth on my Mac Pro, just once to see if it actually works. For my laptops however, Bluetooth is used quite often mouse. I had to remove it.

Do anyone know if there is a solution? I would like to have wifi on my Mac Pro. Which is still fast enough for the software I use premiere, after effects, cinema 4d , so I hope to prolong its lifetime just a bit, but I do need wifi…. First thing I would do is verify that you indeed have the same card.

In the meanwhile; maybe others with a Mac Pro could confirm if this card works? The hardest part for me was getting those tiny connctions in. I the magic combination for me was using my magnifying glasses and the end of a chopstick.
Happy I am a woman with small hands! Well, good to hear that you managed to get it installed! This will be disconnected and use Pin 1. Hmm, so the same model I have had — sold mine a couple months back. Might there be minor revisions on this model? I just talked to the new owner of my old MacPro the one used in this article and his WiFi and Bluetooth work very well.
However; this is good information for those running into performance issues! Thanks for the advice — great help. I screwed the card in place first, then added the wires. I found a wooden chop-stick the perfect tool to hold the card flat in the sprung mount. This also frees up space for you other hand to screw in the first screw nearest to wire 1. I then used the chop-stick to help locate the connector over the mount and pushed down snap it in place. And thanks for the chop-stick tip!
One caveat, however: I found 4 antenna cables: After switching connectors with the same cables, same result. After watching a YouTube video of the same procedure, I saw that only cables 1 and 2 should be connected. Thank you for the compliment! The majority used the cable connections as I described, and it worked for them just fine. I recently purchased a used Mac Pro 1. I used the exact Wi-Fi Airport card you describe on this article. The card does not have any numbers on the antenna connectors, though.
My bundle of antenna cables on my Mac Pro has 4 cables: Even with the 1 and 3 cables, the Airport card did detect the surrounding Wi-Fi networks including mine but for some weird reason it kept failing to connect to my network.
I had a difficult time connecting one of the anennae to my airport card. I have a MacPro 4 from early According to one of the very helpful users Michael Haas, see his comment here the card might be located differently than show in my pictures. One user reported that his Mac Pro needed the wires to be swapped. For 5Ghz the antenna might be different. Thanks for posting your findings though! This worked perfectly for me on a Mac Pro 1.
I had tried a USB wifi solution but the speed was terrible. Following your instructions, am now getting 2x the speed with the internal card as I was with the USB solution and 3x what I was getting using a powerline connection. I initially hesitated on which wire went where given the comments, but I too found that wires 1 and 3 worked and that connecting the shorter of the two the near post and longer to the far one as you state was in fact the right solution. Also, I got no System pop up on the new hardware, perhaps because I had already tried the USB solution so the machine had a wifi connection already recognized.
But it worked the first time.

Thank you! Thanks for confirming Tim! As for finding new hardware; You could be very right that the previous installed USB WiFi covered that, or maybe because newer Mac OS X version might no longer give that message anymore. Worked perfectly for me! I bought my Mac Pro 3,1 in and the wires were never connected to the mainboard!!
Thanks for taking the time to post a feedback! Hey, I wanted to just drop a line to just say: I do have a couple quick questions if anyone has an answer, fire away! Please let us know if that worked for your setup! Thank you Hans… that seems to have enabled it as it shows in the system profiler and the sidebar.
As for detecting devices; well, I have not been impressed with AirDrop. It sees other devices really slow and the transfer rates are not impressive at all.
